Question DetailsAsked on 12/11/2014

What should I do for some sort of extra protection on the patio sliding glass door.

I want some sort of barrier which provides sufficient security protection on the patio sliding glass door. Does anyone have any kind of recommendation and the name of the contractor that you worked with?

Are you looking for a better locking mechanism or an actual overlay in front of the door to protect the entire door?

The larger window and door sales and installation companies can do this - as can many larger security stores (safes, alarms, locks, etc).

Because it has to be openable from the inside near the sliding glass door handle, it commonly requires penetration of the wall for the release handle, though some do come with an interior push-bar release like school emergency doors. The problem with that kind is they are too easy to open from the outside just by dropping a cord or rope through the grillage and down over the release bar, grab rope end through bars, and pull out on both ends - so for any real security you need the interior-release lever or push-knob type. Commonly into the $1000+ range for ones with any real strength, gecause have to cover the entire moving plus non-moving glass doors.

"Larger" would be ones with multiple service reps, and who maintain a store with showroom, not just an office or workshop they work out of. There are sure to be one (not knowing exactly where you live) in towns like
